Sinatra and Me book coverFrank Sinatra had a history with New Haven, CT thanks to his lifelong friendship with Tony Consiglio, part of the family that ran Sally's Pizzeria on Wooster St. Sinatra called Tony "The Clam" because he kept his mouth shut, but Consiglio finally told his tales to writer Franz Douskey a few years ago and the revelations are published in "Sinatra and Me: The Very Good Years."

Join author Franz Douskey and hear the stories. All are welcome. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Please register online or by phone at (203)265-6754.
